NY Giants schedule: How many winnable games remain in 2021?
By John Makuch
Week 13: at Miami Dolphins
The battle of teams that are now 1-5 could go either way depending on how these teams fight back from injury.
Miami has started Jacoby Brissett for a few weeks now and that has not led to as many wins as a fan may hope for.
The Dolphins expected to be a surefire playoff team but that has become difficult to achieve with five losses this early into the season.
This team has also seen their fair share of injuries like the Giants have and dealt with it differently.
Things could be shaken up in South Beach, with the Dolphins also being thrown in the rumor mill of trading their quarterback, with Texans star Deshaun Watson being thrown in the mix with Miami and Washington.
If Miami has Watson and he plays, they will beat the Giants at home he is that good of a player. If they are still with Tua Tagovailoa or Brissett, this game can be even and up in the balance.
The Dolphins are at the bottom of the leaderboard with statistics on both sides of the ball, but the talent is still there for this team.
Joe Judge is going to have to out coach Brian Flores, another Bill Belichek product like Judge. Both of these coaches have teams that are struggling, injury-ridden, and demoralized but it is up to them to bring this team back to form.
Look for Daniel Jones to put up a valiant effort against a Dolphins defense that has surprisingly struggled thus far. Miami could get it together by Week 13, but as it stands now that side of the ball is not much to worry about.
Although this is a road matchup, the Giants are in a position to pick up a win against a subpar team, and they need to take this opportunity and run with it.
